Starting out from a language-based interest, Sarah Bernauer transfers her subjects into a wide variety of art forms such as sculpture, film, audio, print and photography (in other works, also performance) and combines them in spatial installations.
A central theme in Bernauer’s work is how the internet affects the design of our individual reality and social interactions. In this context, she has given a special attention to the various forms of dealing with language – spoken, written, but also in their manifestation as symbols and signs – and the resulting transformation processes between different cultural and temporal spaces.
Sarah Bernauer is currently based in Berlin. Her work has been shown in various institutions and galleries across Europe, most recently at the Austrian Cultural Forum London, Thames-side Gallery and Kunsthalle Basel.
